Dental Cleanings and Exams

 

Although our General Dentists offer a number of cosmetic and restorative services to help transform your smile, the foundation of long-term oral health begins with through dental cleanings and dental exams. At each Dental Choice location in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta, we work with you to help maintain excellent dental hygiene in order to prevent tooth decay and other serious conditions.

Dental Exams

Dental exams are essential to diagnosing and treating tooth and gum disease before extractions or oral surgery become necessary. The Dental Choice doctors also examine the patient's bite to check for TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders. In addition, we perform a soft tissue screening to closely monitor any signs of oral cancer.

Our doctors believe in the importance of patient communication and in keeping patients fully informed during each office visit. This is why we encourage patients to ask as many questions as they wish. The team members at each Dental Choice office are aiming to help patients feel at ease during dental exams and throughout the treatment process.

Dental Cleanings

Regular dental cleanings are critically important to keeping teeth and gums in excellent condition. During each dental cleaning at Dental Choice, we will polish the teeth to remove plaque deposits and we will scale the teeth to remove tartar and hard deposits found under the gum line. Then our hygienists will perform a thorough cleaning to remove stains and to help keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible. We will also instruct you on how to properly care for your teeth at home in between dental cleanings at our offices.

Regular dental cleanings and proper home care are not only important for maintaining oral health, but also the health of the rest of the body. Scientific evidence suggests that periodontal disease is linked to other conditions in the body including heart disease and diabetes. Gum disease has also been show to increase the likelihood of premature births in pregnant women. It is believed that gum disease allows the bacteria in the mouth to access the bloodstream. These harmful bacteria can circulate through the body to other systems where they can increase the likelihood of disease. In addition, signs of osteoporosis and other conditions may first show up in the teeth. Protect your dental health and overall health with proper brushing and flossing and by scheduling regular dental cleanings.
